OBJECTIVE Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) is known to regulate the bioavailability of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) and the levels of IGFBP-1 are increased in the morning in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. We investigated the nocturnal fluctuations of glucose, IGFBP-1, and free IGF-1 levels with three insulin regimens. (More)
The etiology of idiopathic short stature (ISS) and Leri-Weill dyschondrosteosis (LWD) in European patients is known to include SHOX mutations and copy-number variations (CNVs) involving SHOX and/or the highly evolutionarily conserved non-coding DNA elements (CNEs) flanking the gene. However, the frequency and types of SHOX abnormalities in non-European(More)
Late-onset circulatory dysfunction (LCD) is a phenomenon specific to premature infants and is characterized by sudden onset of hyponatremia, hypotension, oliguria and non-physiological weight gain, without an obvious cause, in premature infants after stabilization of circulation and respiration. The cause of LCD is not clear, but adrenal insufficiency in(More)
OBJECTIVE Moderately preterm (MP) (32-33 weeks) and late preterm (LP) (34-36 weeks) infants have higher risks of mortality and growth and developmental problems. We, herein present a new concept of nutritional assessment, total energy intake (TEI), which is the sum total of kilocalories administered in all nutrient forms. METHODS Fifty-two preterm infants(More)
Most cases of Noonan syndrome (NS) result from mutations in one of the RAS-MAPK signaling genes, including PTPN11, SOS1, KRAS, NRAS, RAF1, BRAF, SHOC2, MEK1 (MAP2K1), and CBL. Cardiovascular diseases of varying severity, such as pulmonary stenosis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), are common in NS patients. RAF1 mutations are most frequent in NS with(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate and prompt diagnosis is required for the primary evaluation of pediatric appendicitis. Among pediatricians and surgeons working in Yamanashi Prefecture, the pediatric appendicitis medical information (PAMI) sheet was edited in April 2011 to reflect the diagnostic results of the pediatric primary and emergency medical service and used as(More)
To elucidate the mechanism of insulin resistance due to insulin counterregulatory hormones (ICRHs) and evaluate ICRH secretion kinetics, ICRH concentrations were measured and correlated with blood glucose levels in 28 type 1 diabetic patients. Blood glucose was measured before bedtime. Early morning urine samples were collected the next morning before(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of sunlight exposure for increasing bone mineral density (BMD) in children with severe disability. The subjects were five children with severe disability, aged 6 to 8 years. BMD was measured at baseline and after 3, 6, 9, and 12 months of starting sunlight exposure. All caregivers of patients were(More)
A 14-year-old girl was admitted because of general fatigue and cervical lymphadenopathy. She showed bilateral struma (IInd degree) and enlargement of her left cervical lymph nodes. Laboratory data revealed neutropenia (219/microliter) and thrombocytopenia (Plt 5.1 x 10(4)/microliter) with mild anemia (Hb 11.1 g/dl), and the bone marrow aspirate and biopsy(More)
